About Us

Hillwood Country Club offers championship golf, outdoor and indoor tennis, competition swimming pools, state-of-the art fitness, fine dining, banquet facilities, and social member events in a family-friendly environment!



Director of Golf Mike Lathrop, a PGA Class A Professional, oversees the 18-hole, par 72 golf course. Originally designed by legendary golf architect Dick Wilson, the 7,000+ yard course opened for play in 1957 and was renovated by Bruce Hepner of world-renowned Renaissance Golf in 2003 & 2011. The latest renovations included reconstruction of the greens and selected tees, re-routing and replacement of the cart paths and other aesthetic improvements. Members can fine-tune their games on our extensive practice facilities, play in club tournaments, stock up on gear in our pro shop and enjoy programs for men, women and juniors.

Golf Course Rules


Hillwood offers the largest private club tennis programs in the South, with two locations overseen by former world-ranked and two-time SEC tennis champion from Vanderbilt, Charles Batt. Our Hillwood campus offers six Rubico (clay) courts, two hard courts and two grass courts. Our Whitworth location features four indoor courts and eight outdoor courts including four Rubico and four hard courts. Both locations offer a full-service pro shop. A variety of league play is available for men, women and juniors. Five full-time U.S.P.T.A. professionals conduct tennis camps and clinics for children of all ages throughout the year. Private, semi-private and group lessons are available.


Executive Chef Mark Wakefield and his outstanding culinary team offer some of Nashville's best cuisine in our three restaurants. The Terrace Grill is our adults-only formal dining room with gorgeous views of our golf course. The newly renovated Hickory Grill is a favorite for the entire family with a more relaxed atmosphere including bar seating and four TVs to watch the big game. The Jackson Room is a men's only restaurant and lounge located near the golf shop with breakfast available.


The Hillwood Fitness Center opened in 2011 and is one of the few stand-alone fitness facilities at a private club in the country. The 22,000 square-foot facility includes over 10,000 square feet of workout space with the latest state-of-the-art equipment including cardio machines, free weights, and stretching areas. Over 30 complimentary group exercise classes are offered each week, along with a Pilates studio for private reformer sessions. The facility includes men's and women's locker rooms with whirlpool, steam, and private massage rooms, along with child care and youth rooms. Our Whitworth property on Elmington Ave. also houses a fitness center.


The Club has competition pools and separate baby pools at both the Hillwood and Whitworth locations. Poolside Canteens and locker room facilities are also available at both locations. Private and group lessons are taught by our certified instructors for all levels of swimming, diving and livesaving. The Hillwood Hurricanes and Whitworth Sharks are both members of the Nashville Swimming and Diving Leagues for inter-club competition.
